I am trying to use the windows client (2.1.9-gtk2) to connect to a linux
server running on the LAN. When I click the "Connect to Network Game" button,
the network connection window appears very briefly, but then the program
closes with no on-screen error messages. The stderr.txt file in the freeciv
program folder gives the message "0: Did not find token entry_name in (null)
line 1".
I have found a few old references to this problem online, suggesting that the
"default_metaserver=" line should be removed from .civclientrc (see
http://www.mail-archive.com/freeciv-dev@gna.org/msg03350.html), but this did
not help in my case. I have tried uninstalling freeciv and removing all
related config files and folders, but upon reinstallation the problem
persists.  The SDL client works correctly on the same machine.  I am
attaching the stderr.txt file produced with the "-d 3" command line option.
